    Well, I would think that UL versions of vehicles in general would be in fairly short supply, as they're considered "special" though I do agree a common UL vehicle would be nice for a change. :)

    Bad driver? Remember your first hummer test drive? I do. You parked on a hill and got out and it rolled back into the water. LOL

    Also makes a handy container :D - just unloaded 120kg of claws into it, prolonging the hunting run a bit more. In my garage only the boat has a bigger trunk of 180kg but often there is no river/pond nearby to spawn it.

    This thing is freaking great - it climbs straight up cliffs and mountains - like no other vehicle I've tried, which is a lot :D

    The race course must have vertical sections!!!!

    (Remember, collision damage does not affect TT value, only mob/pvp damage - it can last forever if you want it to.)

    Is it still a mission? When I came to the planet today two missions were aborted one of them being this mission. When I picked it up again it stated I would get a token for crafting/hunting (not sure) the cell this time?

    Also when viewing your great video of the 'hover bike' I noted that you didn't have much problems driving it on hills without it flipping over much as with the Hoverpod Mk2. But I've been reading that a lot are having the same problems as the Hoverpod. Have you found problems with this?

    Wrong mission broker. You need a guy named Ferguson, he's outside of the base.

    The hovebike's steadiness depends on the terrain, sometimes it tends to flip over too.

    Hoverpods are lame. The Spear is hard to control, easy to flip, and not inclined to right itself. But it's pretty amazing - insane acceleration and it will climb like crazy. It is very sensitive to both visible and phantom objects so beware, but it is really fun when you get some good terrain beneath it.

    Here is a video I did at the Raceway showing the differences with the Spear and Hoverpod.

    Well, maybe the race track is not made for hoverpods. Maybe more for cars with wheels. It is likely that all the vehicles have different physics.

    I've tried it in a Valk, and the gaps between each individual ring make it impossible. It does seem like it is made for hovers - but they would have to have a higher top speed to clear the jumps. The big gap jump is a bit to far the Valk, too, but not by much.

    We'll have to see what other vehicles they come out with, and what higher level Spears can do - maybe they have something in mind....

    Could be that where everyone is playing with the vehicles as a racetrack isn't quite finished? :dunno:

    I hope not..The track is perfect now! Mind you we are dealing with the Spear Mk1 so the MK2 will most likely run much better.

    Now with the Hoverpod MK2, I found that when jumping it almost makes it to the other side. So close that it hits the other ramp and bounces off. What I want to see is if the MK3 can make the jump. I have a feeling that it will make all jumps.

    And also, the hoverpod needed a few VUs before it started running as it is now, so this will most likely be the same with the Spear.

    I want a Spear! What it does over the pod is going up hills forward. And yes, you need to learn how to drive them to be able to drive them up hills well without them flipping. It's not all that hard really. I almost, almost! got my pod to drive up the PA buildings without falling. I think soon I'll get it.

    BTW, last VU hoverpod Mk2 can now drive, kind of, up hills forward....

    I would LOVE to see a huge-ass racetrack out in the desert planes somewhere, where's there's more flatland, but also a course that becomes a challenge with obstacles, like rock hills, tunnels, around hills, a quick swerve around a body of water, through that town where the Dusters are just to harass them ...

    You get the picture. :D

    And one with a defined Start and Finish line so we can have the "Cyrene Duster Speedway" :yay:

    I can imagine ALL kinds of events there ... maybe even throw in a patch of PvP zone somewhere along the way to make it more interesting. :xxxlaugh:

    Oh hell no! No PVP with my Spear!

    On another note I kept thinking about the picture of the Spear that was first posted and remembering something was different about the one that we have now. So I went back to Cyrene's Facebook page to find the picture.
    [​IMG]

    Now this is the one I fell in love with. But also noticed this one says Spear Head. So is the one we have just a beginners version? Or have they decided to change the name? Are the ones we have now suppose to have the glow underneath and its just a bug right now? Please say its the later. :)

    Your describing pod racing from the Star Wars movie. Complete with Sandmen (Dusters) sharp shooters picking off unsuspecting victims.
